Lemon Essential Oil and are cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons. The fresh scent can eliminate odors and infuse your home or office with its clean, lemon-drop scent when diffused.
I used lemon oil a lot because it benefits skin and hair. I add it to some of my homemade DIY beauty products. I mostly use it in my Night Cream and in an Under Eye Dark Circle Serum daily. Lemon oil can reduce the appearance of blemishes on your skin and if used in hair care products and it can make your hair look smooth and shiny especially if your hair is oily by nature.
Lemon Vitality can add a bright, dynamic flavor to many dishes and beverages. I have to admit that I haven't experimented much yet with using essential oils in food since I don't cook much these days.
It is also good to note that some citrus oils like Lemon can cause photosensitivity, so it is recommended to avoid applying to exposed skin before spending time in the sun. Everyone's skin is different, I haven't had any trouble with being outside on sunny days, but I would probably be more cautious if I was sitting on the beach all day or going to a tanning salon (neither of which I do anyways.)
